We actually have a good record against the Rangers this year, so I wouldn't mind playing them. I just want the Pens out. They're a streaky team and if they would somehow come back and win this series, they'll be a pain to knock out. And as much as I'd like to listen to NBC praise the greatness of Crosby, I'd rather just see the disappointed look on his face during the handshake after Game 5.
I liked our compete level, we got more shots on goal, that's something that we talked about. It's a race to 4, we got one, they got one ... that's hockey. We'll regroup and head back home and work on a couple more things and be ready to go.
James wizniewski scratched tonight lmao ... And people actually were mad we didn't trade for him
Nice to see people finally opening up to the possibility of trading howard ... Howard's still a number 1 but mrazek is miles ahead adding a solid veteran goalie along mrazek and then trading howard will only make this team stronger
The ability to think outside the box and think for oneself whilst following the established rules and regulations and working as a member of a team is almost unheard of in the working world.
Half the people out there aren't smart enough to do it and freeze up when anything goes wrong; the other half think they are smart enough and go whole-hog in their own direction for the sake of being different without considering the consequences of their actions.
How so? A winger is not typically as good defensively as a center. It's not his game. If you look at the other top wingers ranked around Ovechkin (guys like Jagr, Lafleur, Bossy), I don't remember them being Selke candidates either.
The team has failed because other than him, few guys show up in the playoffs. The Capitals historically are a bad playoff team. Apparently, one guy can't change that.
Well I have only really been a Wings fan and if Tatar or Nyquist or pretty much any other winger not named Franzen played like Ovechkin did/does they wouldn't be around. Two way players is in my opinion the only way hockey should be played and all the rest of those guys are one trick ponies who sit in the slot or on the dot most the game waiting for a good pass or cherry pick waiting for a pass to score easy. Just not my thing.
